Hi there,
I have had partial hysterectomy 1 year ago, and have been having pain in ovaries for two months and I am not responding to the birth control that is supposed to help the pain. I am so tired of being in pain that I am contemplating a full hysterectomy. Any advice? I am 32, and this pain is really affecting my life. I am worried about the side effects of a full hyst,because it took me an entire year to feel somewhat normal again.
The pain in ovaries is supposed to get better over time but it's getting worse!
Any advice?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the need for complete hysterectomy and cause for the ovarian pain that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. Consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation to rule out causes like ovarian cysts, endometriosis, PID, pelvic adhesions, etc. Further treatment options and need for surgery would be suggested based on your examination findings and evaluation results. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
